Vet, 84, enjoys biking Corps dam trails ergonomically
Meredith Miller, an 84-year-old veteran, enjoys the West Penn Trail at Conemaugh Dam during Memorial Day weekend...Miller, with his ergonomically designed bicycle, said he covered 14 miles from Saltsburg, Pa., to the dam and back when this picture was taken. The trail has several challenging hills--even for the avid cyclist. He said he relies on the specially equipped battery-operated peddle assist mounted over the back drive wheel to help to climb the steep grades along the trail. Miller said he tries to ride the trail two to three times a week and has taken his bike on 50-mile-long rides. He also takes his video camera (mounted on his hat) to document his journeys. Miller, when asked, said his favorite trail is the one at Youghiogheny River Lake. (Photo and story by Mark Keppler, Conemaugh)
